Dark Expressions

21 Feb


There have been some very high tides for the last couple of days so Husb and I went down to the beach earlier this evening for a look. I took my little hand made Khadi paper sketchbook that I’d prepared with an Indian ink wash, rubbed on with a small natural sponge. I sat in the dark and captured an impression of the darkness and the rough sea with compressed charcoal that I used side on. When I got home I splashed some white ink onto it with a very stiff hog hair brush.

Drawing in the dark isn’t easy, I don’t think there’s any point in trying to do detailed drawings, it’s an ideal situation to just cut loose and get free and expressionistic.
